Chobe National Park in Botswana supports an enormous concentration of game. Fed by the Chobe and Zambezi rivers, Chobe National Park is a favorite drinking spot for hundreds of species of mammals and birds. From certain vantage points, one can actually watch the predator/prey relationship in action, as lions or cheetah stalk antelope or wildebeest. Very few people on earth will ever get to witness these creatures in their natural surroundings. Seeing a pride of lionesses hunt on television is fairly incredible, imagine what it must be like in person.

There are national parks in America that feature truly breathtaking landscapes. However, trips to Yosemite, Big Bend, and Yellowstone cannot truly prepare someone for the scenery of Chobe National Park. The geography of the land and the collection of flora and fauna are so different from that of the States that many Americans who travel there feel as though they are visiting an entirely different world.

Wildlife Safaris in Chobe National Park

African tour packages will almost always include a wildlife safari. Places,such as Namibia and Kenya, are visited by people from all over the world, all year round. However, few destinations provide tourists with the opportunity to see the variety of game equal to that of Chobe National Park.

Some of the finest game lodges in Africa are located in Chobe National Park. They provide a bit of comfort and modernity to those who do not want to spend their entire trips camping outside. For people who do want to enjoy their nights under the stars, there are safaris in Chobe National Park that take place in tented camps.
